Infant EducationThe future starts today!
New Castelar College is a member of the World Association of Early Childhood Educators (WEAEI-WAECE), which allows our Early Childhood Education teaching staff to receive continuous training and to share experiences with educators from all over the world.
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
This cycle ranges from 0 to 3 years old. It is a very special and important stage of a child's life and therefore our objectives are focused on their socio-emotional and motor development.
We pay special attention to the adaptation period, as we believe it is essential to respect the different rhythms, needs and development of each child.
We consider of vital importance the environment where learning takes place, therefore, our classrooms are conditioned for children to develop their curiosity, interest and autonomy. We give special importance to the psychomotor development of the child through games where motor imitation, sensory play and manipulation predominate.
Our methodology is based on stimulating, flexible and individualized work and we encourage each child to become the dynamic protagonist of his or her own learning.
Within the school schedule, in order to complement and give meaning to learning, we carry out activities, inside and outside the school, which encompass all the objectives that we will develop: excursions, workshops, different projects and activities shared with families.
SECOND CYCLE OF INFANT EDUCATION
This cycle ranges from 3 to 6 years of age. Each child is an individual being with unique interests, abilities and needs that differentiate them from others. In addition to caring for their academic development, at New Castelar College we accompany them in their personal growth process, sharing moments of love and affection that help them forge their personality.
We believe in individualized teaching respecting the rhythms of each child and therefore we care about:
- To create in our classrooms a climate rich in stimuli that favors learning in a way that avoids limiting the child's possibilities.
- Always start from what the child knows, and put him/her in situations that allow him/her to relate what he/she knows to what is proposed.
- Diversify the materials used in learning situations, favoring generalization and transfer to different contexts.
- Always put the child in a situation of success. Use a positive pedagogy, based on success. The child has to have the feeling of success, at least once a day, and that is our responsibility.
- Make teaching/learning situations more flexible so that they can be enriched with unplanned inputs
- Globalize content, areas and activities, thus promoting project work.
- Encourage meaningful learning: that children build their knowledge through play and daily experiences...
- Use the game as a motivating and global learning activity.
- Accompany them in the formation of their first social groups.
- Building your self-concept.
- Hygiene care.
